Unique Historical Monument near Anapa to be Buried

Archeologists have decided to cover with soil the unique historical site near Anapa – in this way historians try to protect from vandals a temple complex of the 6 century B.C. located in the Vestnik Settlement.

      For lack of money it is impossible to carry out twelve-month studies or post own regular security guards near the digging site, the press-service of the expedition informs.

      Recently frequented attacks of black diggers and vandals on the archeological monument have put the unique temple complex on the verge of final destruction. Only in 2012 unidentified violators in search of valuables dug all over the area of the Demeter Temple of Anapa and broke the altar plate.

      According to archeologists, most of the destroyed things cannot be restored already. Just after a few days the Anapa monument will be totally covered with soil till summer, when it will have to be dug out anew for further researches.

      In the course of excavations of the antique town dated back to the 6thcentury B.C. the archeologists found remains of the walls of temple complex – presumably a shrine of goddess Demeter. Hitherto similar constructions were known to scientists only in the lands of Hellas and South Italy.
